The district BJP on Monday staged a protest in the city against the failure of the state government in providing drinking water and handling the drought situation in the state.
Addressing party workers, former deputy chief minister K S Eshwarappa said the BJP would submit a memorandum to the Governor on the failure of the government in Bangalore on May 7.
Despite the drinking water problem worsening in the State, the government has failed to take action. Even the direction of Assembly Speaker Kagodu Thimmappa on tackling the drinking water problem was not taken seriously.
Already, the people were facing problems due to skyrocketing prices of essential commodities. At this time, the state government has also hiked the KSRTC bus fare which has added to the problems, he alleged.
He said Chief Minister Siddaramaiah would definitely have to step down after the result of the Lok Sabha election. Already, Power Minister D K Shivakumar has openly declared that he would be the next chief minister, and it was a signal that Siddaramaiah would lose his position. Even the Governor had expressed his displeasure at the Congress administration, he said.
CMC former presidents S N Channabasappa and N J Rajashekar, CADA former president Girish Patel and corporator Mohan Reddy participated in the protest.
